Third graders are introduced to the human skeletal system. Using play-doh, they discover what happens to the bones of the body as a person moves and how broken bones heal. After reading examples, they examine the different types of joints. They complete a quiz on vocabulary and the functions of the bones.
In this anatomy worksheet, students analyze a picture of a human skeleton, which has 11 of the bones labeled, and then answer questions about it. They then label the bones and answer questions about the skeletons of a dog and a cat. There are 36 questions on this worksheet.
Students discuss the need for humans to have a skeletal system and what would happen if we did not have bones. In this skeletal system lesson plan, students label each bone in the human skeletal system as a group, and then examine two chicken bones and think about the differences between them.
